So, these are really dark, but I brought the first hatched from the incubator in, to make friends with the heater, really, but then I remembered I have a webcam now. :D

Again, hard to tell from this picture, but this little peeper is light enough in color that it's probably a teeny, tiny rooster. Dominiques (or Dominicks, depending on who is asked,) are distinguishable by color even as chicks. The hens are charcoaly and the roosters much lighter, both are speckled black and white. They're what Barred Rock chickens were bred up from.

Oh! So cute! I was in the feed store the other day and I had to keep reminding myself that I really don't need any more chickens...
I want to come see yours! Maybe I could invite myself over some night after school?

Sounds fab!
I'm going out to the garage with my homework to chicksit the incubator...not because I need to mind you, but rather to greet the little chicklets when they hatch, and to pop them into the temporary brooder with Little Giblet, seen in the picture, there. He's lonely, 'cause he's the first hatched.
I've got time after school tomorrow, and quite a while after school on Thursday because it takes me a while to get home from Lacey, where my elementary school is located.

tomorrow I'm staying home from school to work on the gardens (hooray).. and Thursday evening I'll be at Sage's next to the west side co-op because we're sponsoring my friend [ profile] s00j playing a show there (want to come?)... What does next week look like for you?

One of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers is staying at my house next week, so maybe? Evenings are always better for me than any other time.

peep peep peep! He's still the only, lonely one. I did some homework out in the garage so he'd have someone to keep him company. Chickens is gregarious, y'know...
